Default yum-presto and comps

In F12 we shipped yum-presto in @gnome-desktop - a kind of a compromise I guess.
Presto/deltarpm is very useful for machines with low net connectivity to mirrors
but enough resources to rebuild rpms.

But yum-presto is not a desktop package at all and certainly does not
belong in the gnome-desktop group. [1]

Perhaps the right approach for f13 is to install yum-presto by default
but to disable it by default? Lighter compression might also
help to reduce the resource requirements for older machines?

It looks like there are a couple of questions to deal with:
1) yum-presto is in @gnome-desktop and shouldn't be
2) yum-presto is enabled by default

If we don't want (2), then remove it from @gnome-desktop. People who
need/want it can install it using "yum install yum-presto", and it will
start working immediately.

If we do want (2), then we just need to work out how to fix (1). If not
@gnome-desktop (which is probably not where it belongs), then possibly
@base?

FWIW, my opinion on (2) (as the yum-presto maintainer) is that it should
be installed by default, but I'm obviously biased.

IIRC we've already reduced the xz compression level in our rpms from 7
to 2. (See http://osdir.com/ml/fedora-devel-list/2009-09/msg00946.html)

I don't think that there really is something to fix here, and I don't
know that I can make you happy. If I do the customization in the
kickstart file, you complain as well (see PK-command-not-found)....

+1

In fact, we voted in FESCo that it should be added to one of the base groups
instead (@base, I guess). It makes no sense to have it in @gnome-desktop nor
in the KDE .ks file (which is where it is at the moment – for KDE, it's in
the .ks because we refused to add it to @kde-desktop as it has nothing to do
with KDE).

I guess I would be fine with it being in @base or something.

We can always - it in the Xfce kickstart or any other spin that doesn't
want it by default.

Just wondered does it have any implications for mock?

Mock uses the buildsys-build group iirc.

I meant to add that the reason this came up was I was trying to work out
where to put yum-langpacks in comps: yum-presto being one of the reference
packages I searched for.

So where can/should yum-langpacks live?

Probably in base. Now whether it would be default or optional....
